Andrew Huang - Solipsist: Horror ljepote

Kad su čudovišta prelijepa. Tumor perja, konfeta, korijena, cvjetova, ticala... Flora-fauna-ljudi kao jedinstven amalgam koji ekslplodira i pretvara se u pijesak. Život u naponu snage i destrukcije, kreativnosti i urušavanja. Himna prelijepom užasu života.

"SOLIPSIST is a three part psychedelic fantasy short film about otherworldly beings whose minds and bodies converge into one entity.  Filled with elaborate costumes, stunning visual effects, and underwater puppets, the film is a non-narrative purely visual/audio experience designed to transport viewers through a hypnotic, dream-like experience.   It consists of three parts, each featuring visually fantastic characters and creatures that converge with each other in surreal ways.  The film concludes by featuring all three segments combine into a colorful, psychedelic finale.
 “Solipsist” is meant to be a purely visual film built around the idea of convergence and unison between living things.  The title comes from the philosophical theory of solipsism in which the self is the only thing that one can know or prove to exist.  The isolation of this theory inspired me to imagine a counter-hypothesis – a world in which living beings are not constrained by a singular experience.  Rather, the characters in this film are constantly merging into one another, forming a collective consciousness through unison of their minds and bodies.
The visual style of the film is also an integral part of the film’s concept.  My goal is to create a film that is extremely colorful and playful in its materials with an emphasis on practical special effects, costumes and puppetry.  Jim Henson’s muppets and fantasy films of the 80s are a huge inspiration for me in their use of physical props and creatures.  I want to bring this practice of using tactile production design and creature-making into my own work to bring this fantasy world to life."
